    The result is some of the loosest, most facinating music of their career. [Apr 2008, p.92]
  2. Far from being a band at a crossroads, as might have been implicated around the release of "Funf," they reaffirm themselves here as one of our unsung independent music gems.
  3. Do It! finds Clinic getting curiouser and curiouser, but that's the direction that suits them best.
  4. Clinic has returned to making music that feels limitless. [Spring 2008, p.7]
  5. Do It is simply a case of Clinic once again doing what they do best; but with a new-found vigour that rediscovers the confident swagger of earlier releases while building upon realms explored on later excursions.
  6. The fifth disc in this succession proves Clinic never skip a beat or miss a step. [June 2008, p.134]
  7. No song is longer than three minutes and 30 seconds, and the band seems to be on a mission to get in, do it, and get out. It's that attitude that keeps Clinic a fixture, with an unsettling, enjoyable addition to its repertoire to boot.
  8. Clinic play with a renewed sense of the same eerie raucousness that drew people to them in the first place; this would be an easy second-album recommendation for a new fan after they've initially discovered and absorbed "Internal Wrangler."
  9. Do It! simply adds another 30 minutes to Clinic's quest to keep playing the perfect sound forever. With a sound as arresting as this, it's hard to fault them for not branching out more.
  10. It’s nothing new and it’s nothing scary, but its renewed vigor is encouraging.

    Do It! is accessible enough to appeal to both curious indie-pop fans and avant musos without an obscurantist chip in their shoulders. [Summer 2008, p.98]
